Even though rhubarb is considered a vegetable, it is most often treated as a fruit.† Rhubarb provides a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and calcium.† It is usually eaten cooked, and just like fresh cranberries, rhubarb is almost unbearably tart on its own.† It needs the added sweetness of sugar, honey, or fruit juice to balance out the acidity.† Since rhubarb is primarily used for pie, it is also referred to by it's nickname the "pie plant".††
